Prince Harry has been playing a lot of polo lately, but he fell off his horse in two recent matches, which caused concern among fans as his wife Meghan Markle watched
The Duke of Sussex was pictured falling off a horse during the last two polo games he played, which led fans to worry about the royal family, and dramatic reports claim that he “almost died”. Although this is far from the case, Prince Harry has been observed doing severe stretching after a rollover.

Stretching after a fall (and indeed, after any exercise) is a good way to minimize muscle pain so Harry doesn’t feel too stiff.
While fans expressed concern for Harry after his accident, many were also full of praise for the prince’s polo attempts.
He reportedly scored two goals in the match, and photos of the royal family on their horse collected endless heart-shaped emoticons on Twitter.

Another wrote: “Prince Harry makes polo look so cool”, while another commented: “It’s something you should be excited about! Come on, Prince Harry.”

Harry has worked hard to maintain his polo form, and Britain’s Millie Hine, who knows members of Prince Harry’s Los Padres team, says Daily mail that Harry trained four times a week and went to the gym most days to keep up with other professional players.
